Glynco FAQs

The FLETC maintains a walking campus concept. Bus service is provided to and from the airports, to off center lodging accommodations, and to other special locations as needed. Cars cannot be driven to class. Cars are permitted, but parking on Center is limited and all student cars will remain at the lodging location until the end of the training day.

To register a car at the FLETC, operators must provide a valid drivers license and proof of insurance upon entry to the Center.

The FLETC was created to train federal law enforcement officers. There is an on-site office that represents State, Local, and International law enforcement personnel. Private sector students can be admitted if the admission criteria is satisfied and a Partner Agency sponsors the student. Appropriate documentation from the Partner Agency is forwarded to the Director of the Office of State, Local, and International training for his approval.

Phones are provided in each dormitory room with procedures on their use. Long distance phone calls from your room must be made with a calling card or collect. WiFi is available in all dormitories at a cost to the student.

We have several training schedules but the normal training day for basic and most advanced training programs is either 7:00 am to 4:00 pm or from 9:00am to 6:00pm.   Practical exercises are often scheduled at night to offer the student benefits of darkness for actual situations. The normal training week is Monday through Friday, but training may be scheduled on Saturdays if necessary.  PLEASE BE AWARE THAT CIRCUMSTANCES CAN ARISE WHICH WOULD CAUSE US TO DEVIATE FROM THE ABOVE STATED SCHEDULE.

Since the agency is the entity that enrolls a student, they are the only ones who know when they plan on sending a particular employee. Therefore, the FLETC course schedule would be of no benefit to an individual. You should check with your agency. Additionally, the course schedule is constantly changing as the FLETC adjusts the schedule to meet the needs of the agencies and to accommodate other scheduling requirements. Just because a course is scheduled, does not necessarily mean it will actually occur because of these last minute changes and requirements.

This is between you and your employing agency. Airports in Brunswick, Jacksonville, FL, and Savannah, GA, serve the FLETC. Both Jacksonville and Savannah airports are located at least an hour away via Interstate 95. The Brunswick airport is only 2-3 miles away and is the airport all agencies and trainees are encouraged to use. Effective February 10, 2002, Delta and ExpressJet/The Delta Connection (formerly Atlantic Southeast Airlines) will commence jet service to the Brunswick airport. The aircraft is a 50-passenger regional jet that can fly over 500 miles per hour at altitudes up to 41,000 feet. It is recognized for safety, convenience, and comfort. Please check with your organization's travel office or call the Delta/ASA toll free reservation number at 1-800-221-1212.

We cannot provide that information to you. We can only address the requirements for position vacancies at the FLETC. You should contact our Human Resources Division for FLETC information. If you are interested in working for any other law enforcement agency, then you should contact that agency directly.

Child development services (an on-site child development center) is available for the children and grandchildren of permanent and detailed staff and instructors of the FLETC and on-site Partner Agencies.  Visit the Child Development web page for more information.

Yes. In the main classroom building, there are 48 computers on-line upstairs and 12 computers on-line downstairs available to access personal e-mail & internet accounts.  We are hoping to double that number by the end of the fiscal year.

You may also access your personal e-mail or Internet account  from those dorm rooms with phones.  To do so, you must have your own computer and you must be able to access your Internet Service Provider (ISP) either by a local (Brunswick, GA) phone number or by using a toll free number provided by the ISP. 

Another possible solution would be to use your personal telephone credit card toll free number to call your ISP, but this would be a long distance call and you would be responsible for paying for the charges (it would be your own telephone card you would be using).

The FLETC is located 6 miles north of Brunswick, GA, between Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL . The names "FLETC," "The Center," and "Glynco" are interchangeable; however, these are not on a map--locate Brunswick on the southeastern coast of Georgia. U.S. Highway 17, a north/south route from Maine to Florida, and Interstate 95. Exit 38 on I-95 directs you to the facility; highway signs are to be observed closely when approaching the Center. Students' automobiles will be registered upon arrival at the Center. Therefore, it is required that students have a valid driver's license and proof of insurance.
